    Bulk of processing cores
    Universal remote functionality
    Lag-free performance

  • Cons:

    Inferior camera results
    Scratch-prone back

  • Conclusion:

    The InFocus Epic 1 is the perfect option if you're looking for a smartphone with the highest number of cores under Rs. 15,000 price bracket.

In the world of smartphones, CPU cores are becoming a major focus for marketers. The race was started back in 2010 with the launch of the world’s first dual-core smartphone (LG Optimus 2X). But with the fast movement of time, the market shifted to quad-core, hexa-core and even octa-core. While many users were trying to satisfy their cravings for high-performance with octa-core CPUs, InFocus has now planned take on Asus, Lenovo and Xiaomi with its deca-core powered Epic 1. Yes, this new smartphone offers you ten cores of mobility.
